Six families from our community shared Chanukah traditions with our Sikh friends on December 17. The celebration was a follow up to a visit to the Dashmesh Culture Centreon October 2nd. This was part of Federation's ongoing effort to make connections to other cultural communities and promote mutual understanding.
Just in time for Chanukah, members of the Jewish community filled the Clayground on December 17th for an inclusive pottery painting session, hosted by Federation's Kesher program. The resulting colourful chanukiyas and latke plates surely brightened up many homes for the holiday of lights.
